Rockwood Park

Return to Saint John

Map

Rockwood park is an amazing place to get lost in the middle of the City of Saint John. I am always amazed by what I find when I explore the trails in the park. There are lakes, ravines, caves, ridges, and hills. The park has very unique and diverse geology and is a Stonehammer Geopark site. There is also lots of wildlife. Chances are you will have a close encounter with a deer or squirrels. There are 53 trails that let you explore it all.

The park has a zoo, a golf course, a campground, a dog park, an interpretive centre and the Lily Lake Pavillion.

Trails in the Park

Directions

There are several access points to the park. The main entrance is near the Lily Lake Pavillion just off of Mount Pleasant Avenue. A loop road takes you around Fisher Lake and Lily lake accessing the trails in this end of the park.

The second most popular access is in the north end of the park just off the end of the junction of Sandy Point Road and Foster Thurston Drive. This is close to the entrance to the Cherry Brook Zoo.

There are also several access points around the edge of the park.
